Disconnecting // Reconnecting

Over half the world's population now lives in cities, but evidence that nature is essential to our wellbeing continues to grow. At the same time, software design is recovering from an an engagement fallacy that champions addiction to our screens. The emergence of the internet of things is poised to capitalize on that attention economy. In designing connected experiences, we have an opportunity: enhance a physical relationship with the world around us, don't distract from it. How might a connected world actually help us reconnect?

She organizes events through DxBoston, a design & innovation series by AIGA, and sits on the board of Press Pass TV, a non-profit production studio that educates + employs opportunity youth.
